Hmm Save your money

Claire Reid, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: WEll I didnt expect it to be amazing, but I expected it to work properly. Unfortunately the poor quality buttons were my main issue, that, and the freezing. My camera would decide to give up and freeze while on and the only way to get it to work again was to let the battery run out recharge and then use it .... I would save your money. When it did work, it gave semigood quality video. Overall, it was just frustrating for me.

  • Summary: i got to say this cam is pretty suckish for being " 1080p HD" the video quality is horrible indoors its very grainy and just blahhh.. maybe its just me or is the audio and video off? like the video is slower than the audio so the video looks all crazy when i upload it! it looks a litte better recording outdoors but its still crappy.. i think my cellphone takes better videos, the picture quailty is ok..

  • Summary: These cameras suck, they shoot in MOV, bad quality, and you cant edit the videos! When you convert them to a different format the quality that already sucks lowers even more and you STILL cant edit them

Its the little thing

Douglas R. Goodenough "doug_id", Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: Controls are flush to the back of the unit and offer no tactile difference to the case. They are also hard to press, especially the on off button. Some form of lens cover would also be appreciated. The video produced is ok but the camera pics are not very good.

JVC PICSIO review

Steven B. Eng "electronic junkie", Amazon
30 November 2009
  • Summary: The PICSIO seem a little light and not very sturdy. My brother's flip was much better made. I compare his Flip mino HD during dinner and both the quality of the Flip and the ability to take videos in low light rooms was easily bettered by the Flip. My vidoes on the PICSIO in low light was extremely grainy but on the Flip was 5-6 times better. If you plan on using the PICSIO in well lit areas it is probably ok but in low light the Flip wins hands down.

Grainy Grainy video

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 November 2009
  • Summary: I had the worst time trying to get good quality video out of this device. It performed sub-par in extremely well-lit areas, on all of the available settings. The device is extremely light (good) but also very cheap feeling. Needless to say, I ended up returning the device.

Could have been reasonable

graxon2001, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: This camera had some things going for it - reasonable enough 1080p video recording with average if unremarkable audio capture & recording to SD card rather than internal memory. However, the downsides heavily outweighed these. The photos on 8MP setting were very, very noisy with little dark blobs regularly on the pictures. On 5MP setting, they were adequate for most web uploading purposes but very mediocre for such a high MP setting.
